Hello, I am Lyhli the Luminescent, also known as Draginfli or Dragonfly the Luminescent.

I work with creativity and imagination as my main tools, and animals are my main interest with cartoons and fantasy/sci-fi stories other huge interests of mine. Some of my favorite popular franchises can be found in my profile "interests."

I'm a fan of many, many things. Here's a list of some of my major projects:

:bulletblue: Ethereal Skies comic series about Holli, Tushar, and Aravi.
:bulletblue: Skyrim fanart, including Holli, Tushar, and other original characters.
:bulletblue: My original universe and all the crazy creations and stories it involves. It's almost as large as the Star Wars universe in structure, feels Doctor Who-esque in story, and is my baby and most prized creation. There may be an original comic series in store that's been in the workings since early 2007.

I do appreciate that my art stay here on deviantArt, and if you want to post it somewhere else, please ask permission first. I am proud of my art, and I don't want it abused.

Journal History


Spirit Animals - The Moon by LyhliTheLuminescent

In a dream I had, every person alive owned a horse. They were all a light, creamy color, and they were all kept in a large, dirty pen. This pen was not quite large enough for the vast number of horses here, but it seemed to work based on the horses' behavior. The horses here acted like sheep and had wool like sheep; they all acted the same and traveled together blindly in tight groups. This pen was owned by a few people who oversaw everyone else's horses. Even if you didn't live here, your horse was here, and every city had their own horse pen.

I was excited when my family told me they'd check up on our horses, and drove us all out there. My horse was the purest, brightest white, but she didn't act like any of the others. The pen owners were aware of this and were trying their best to make her behave. She was put in a tiny stable, barely bigger than she was, and her head was tied down to a post on the ground, not allowing much room for movement at all. She was growing patches of grey coloring from her stress.*

They were trying to break her. They wanted her to be like the rest. I was sad, but only melancholy, since I wasn't sure how I was supposed to think about this. She was visibly stressed, but she was supposed to be the same as the others ... right? Would she be happy when she was like them?

On the drive back home, my family was shallowly happy that the horses were doing well.

But I wasn't. Their approval was unsettling. She's a mustang. She's no sheep.


* The grey patches are what happens to her when she's anxious, stressed, depressed, or any negative feeling. Given enough negativity, she'd be a dapple grey, as I've seen in a warning.
Note: compare the essence of this dream to this dream.
Also note that this mermaid form is a form I often take in lucid dreams, to the strong disapproval and disgust of my family.
Getting the gist yet?
While I probably should have officially posted a hiatus months ago, I've finally figured out what I need to do. 

As of late, my energy reserves are at an all-time low, and it's been leaving me hectic, hateful, and feeling lost as I look for that fulfilment I once had. Problem is, I'm looking for it in all the wrong places, because I no longer have time to search within myself. Adulthood has hit. It sucks, but there's nothing I can do to change it. I've been in a confusing spiral of trying to figure out what I need versus what I want, and trying to define what is a "need" or a "want" in order of priority. 

This confusion was only emphasized by all the work I owe others (of which I have not forgotten or feel ashamed of). I tend to take on more than I can chew, hoping that something new will bring me a new taste of energy. While that's not a bad thought to have, I took it to the extreme where I hoped it could rekindle my own personal energies. 

Sadly, it only recently occurred to me that something outside will not fuel something inside. What comes from inside can only come from inside, or at least in my case in my mind. If I take something from outside and try to use it as fuel for myself, I only end up draining myself or the people I ignorantly took from. If I use something from inside myself, such as my own imagination and soul for my own work, I find that energizing, satisfying fulfilment I was searching for.

So instead of fretting about what time I don't have and looking for external fulfilment, I'm going to start meditating on myself, my art, and my truest needs instead of my wants. What this will result in is me refueling my creativity and finding the courage to post a lot of my own, personal work and stories. I apologize for how long I've made everyone wait for work from me. But I've decided to put my foot down and do something about this issue instead of harming myself by ignoring it. 

What this means for art: everything I owe is on pause, and art commissions are still closed. Necklaces are something I can still do, since each one only takes me a few hours to complete. 

I just need to take some creative "me" time to find myself again. See you soon!

8 Facts about Holli Lujah 

1: I created Holli Lujah to be me in the Skyrim world, so if you know me, you know her. She's me down to the name, Holli/Holly, and being a little rounder (just enough to be adorably fluffy and keep warm in the cold climate). 
2: I decided on Holli's last name "Lujah" since my family joked about changing my middle name to "Lujah" at one point, a play on words of "Hallelujah." But Holli Lujah has no middle name.
3: Despite the racism in Skyrim against outsiders, Holli never felt bothered by it.
4: My first-ever Skyrim experience was on the Xbox 360, where I played as a red-haired, pale, Khajiit woman named "Holli Lujah." I played on this save file until my game became so large that it crashed and froze every time I stepped outside of my home, Windstad Manor. I plan on making the image of this variant of Holli actually Holli's mysterious mother. 
5: Holli is fascinated by new things, especially that of living beings and magic. My research into the Khajiit forms is story-wise one of her adventures to learning more of her kind.
6: The weapons Holli wields at the different stages of her life reflect how true to herself she is, and a reflection of my own self discovery. The swords and physical bow and arrows in the early stage of her life before college, reflect that she does what she is taught. Her ethereal, summoned bow she learns in college is a transitioning stage as she gets used to magic, learns new things, and learns more about herself. When she becomes a conjuration mage at graduation, she is living true to herself, but continues to discover the deeper parts of her soul. As she grows as a mage, she becomes a powerful druid wielding nature magic when she finds a profound connection with nature, which reflects my life choices of becoming more peaceful and hippie-like, leaving unneeded turmoil behind. 
7: I use the Skyrim mod "Druid Essentials" for all of Holli's druidic adventuring. It's a large, cleanly functioning mod with a new discovery at every turn for druid-lovers, and accurately represents Holli's druid magic capabilities. 
8: While Holli specializes in conjuration magic (representative of my creativity in creating new things), she is trying to perfect completely new spells and scrolls of teleportation, portals, and wormholes. This is nothing more than her fascination and scientific mission to expand magic. Her research and experiments often lead to all-nighters, crashing on the enchanting table, and many, many new recipes for stronger coffee. 

8 Facts about Miles Teak 
(I couldn't decide which character, so I chose two)

1: During Miles' very early life as a science experiment, he involuntarily acquired his cybernetics. He was broken out around age 7 by other people-experiments who rallied together and burned the facility down. This was one of the biggest events in his world's recent history, including integrating and helping the escaped prisoners into modern society. With the influx of people who needed homes, most young children were taken to orphanages and similar places to quickly find families. After a complicated process of moving from family to family, Miles eventually stayed with Tanya's family.
2: During his time in the lab facility, Miles made friends with an escaped animal experiment, an albino, bioluminescent bat he named Comet. Comet appears to have a more sophisticated intelligence than other bats, on par with dogs, and followed Miles during the break-out. Comet's stayed with him ever since.
3: Miles was very socially awkward and didn't pick up on social cues or body language until about 10 years old. Because of this, he is very innocent-minded, although now a functioning young adult.
4: Miles is about 4 years behind in school, not unlike the other escaped prisoners who are learning to function in the modern world at varying paces. He rather enjoys school and learning.
5: His cybernetic half of his body was a prototype material, and as such, he suffers from shooting pains where his natural and artificial nerves connect.
6: Despite his early life, he does not suffer from PTSD or hide his past. Rather, he's very open about it and thankful it was not worse than it was.
7: Miles is his world's equivalent of a Pisces.
8: His best friend is a humanoid dragon who urges Miles to lose his virginity.
